Default What do you make of these?!?

I was walking the dog in the local woods (n London) and o noticed this in a tree. Now my snake is pretty small but doesn't this look unmistakeably snake like?!? But it is HUGE. And it appears to have shed in two very large parts. At least 3 m of skin. We don't have domestic wild snakes this size in London surely? [img=http://s17.postimg.org/fynhrsb2j/image.jpg]

do you reckon I'm being paranoid - I'm just questioning whether it's an escaped pet or something. It can't be a U.K. Wild snake?!

Don't worry, no need to be paranoid! The person that discovers the giant murdering snake first always survives

Definitely plastic. There's no scales/scale beds on it at all, and in the first photo you can see that part of it is still shiny-clear the way plastic is.
